I have told you several times about keyloggers, those malicious software that, once installed on your PCs, will retrieve everything you type on the keyboard : passwords, banking information, etc.

Even if an antivirus is the best weapon against these malwares, it happens that some pass through the net.

There are even hardware keyloggers that plug between the PC's USB port and the keyboard connector and can store up to 200 characters.
They are cheap, they can be found for sale all over the web and they are undetectable by antivirus.

How to protect yourself from keyloggers?

To combat this threat, I advise you to install KeyScrambler, a software that will encrypt all keystrokes directly from your keyboard driver to decrypt them only in your web browser (chrome, Firefox, etc.).

If a hacker tries to read your keystrokes, they will end up with unusable text…

There is another solution that is a little restrictive but also allows you to counter keyloggers whatever their type. This method consists of using the visual keyboard of Windows.

To do this, you just have to type for example your mot de passe on the virtual keyboard Windows.

To obtain the virtual keyboard of Windows, just follow these steps:

  • Click on Start
  • then run
  • finally type the following command: “ osk.exe"

There you have it, these methods will help you protect yourself against keyloggers and reduce their chances of infecting your machine Windows. Although your PC can never be 100% secure, taking these steps will significantly decrease your risk of being hacked.
